Not Just a Collection of Short Stories
There is an important place in the literary world for short stories and always has been. Many of the world’s greatest spiritual leaders and teachers have done their most effective teaching in the form of short stories and parables. Who are we to ignore what they have taught us about the form or process of teaching as well as the content? In this world of overloaded focus on content, perhaps it is the awareness of changing form and process that will ultimately save us as a species and a planet. Who knows? Certainly we can leave no stone unturned in our quest to heal and grow personally, as a society, and as a planet. We need all the help we can get. Schaef is well-experienced in the world of living life, observing, and participating with others as we all attempt to bumble along together. This is a warning before you begin to read.
